Winter in Bronx brings with it the need to properly prepare. With inevitably compromised conditions due to snow, ice, and sludge, a winter car safety kit could make all the difference between a simply unfortunate situation and a dangerous one. The team at Victory Mitsubishi is committed to sharing our expertise and other service tips to ensure the safety of drivers in Mount Vernon and the surrounding communities.
To be without something you need in the car could make a situation more inconvenient than it needs to be. We recommend stocking up your vehicle with the following items for the best car emergency kit during the winter months:
It can be tempting to throw on slippers and a sweater to just make a quick errand to the store in New Rochelle, but it’s not worth the off-chance that something like a flat tire could require you to exit the vehicle. It’s important to dress properly or at least have all the necessary articles somewhere in the car, should you need to exit your car in cold, a snowstorm, or high winds.
If you’re making a long winter haul at some point this season— perhaps to visit family over the holidays— we encourage you to pack a few additional items.
With the aforementioned preparations, you will be in good shape to take on the winter months. There are also ways to externally equip your vehicle for inclement weather, like snow tires. If you’re interested in these items, contact us here at Victory Mitsubishi and we’ll guide you along all the options to keep you safer throughout Westchester. We are also here to help with service questions like how much is a transmission, local recommendations like the best lounges in the Bronx, financial advice like whether or not you can or should lease a used car.
